Similar in design to many other hinge-fronted cameras Polaroid released in the eighties and nineties, the Job Pro uses Polaroid 600 integral film.
The Job Pro and - its successor the Job Pro 2 - are cast in bright 'safety' yellow, to highlight their suitability for building and work sites. The bodies are reportedly designed for durability, but on examination they seem practically identical to 600 models of their era. Quick instructions are attached to the back of the camera. Some versions of the Job Pro have the words The Construction Camera near the film exit. Polaroid also released two 'Business Edition' 600 models; these were essentially the same cameras as the Job Pro and Job Pro 2 with different colouration.
Features common to this series of special market 600-series integral film cameras are:
- 116mm fixed-focus 1-element plastic lens
- Close-up adaptor that slides across lens
- Flash auto-fires for every picture
- Exposure compensation buttons on camera front.
